      General Judeau, what is the task before us?

      • Trustin Judeau

        This is the situation now in Syria – https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DDmdHUoXYAAKqBK.jpg . The goverment forces from the southern part of Khannaser should link with SAA around Shaer and besiege East Hama . And the TF from Resafa will start operation towards Sukhna

        • Thegr8rambino

          Agreed! SAA really should close up that daesh pocket east of Hama I think

            Now that Mosul is militarily over, clear the border ares with Syria, this will put pressure on ISIS and make it easier to get to DeZ, there is no time as SDF is moving towards DeZ west of the Euphrates.

          • Thegr8rambino

            Yes I agree PMU and other Iraqi forces need to start working on the border and DeZ now

          • gold37

            Iraq did attack (with Syrian consent) the ISIS HQ in Mayadeen recently, so it may be just a week or so away

          • Thegr8rambino

            Very good :)))

    • Attrition47

      It will take a lot of US head-chopping, heart-eating raper resources to fight the Syrians there too. I’m still hoping for it to lead to a big advance elsewhere….

    • Germinator

      Yes, it is very hard terrain for the attacker. Maybe the SAA should encircle it. A strong advance from Ithriya in southern direction?!

  • Thegr8rambino

    i have no doubt in my mind whatsoever SAA will prevail even here too

    • telefonkabel

      But are these Mountains worth the time? I think not…
      They coud just be another pocket for the time beeing, or they come out and would be a easier target…

      • Thegr8rambino

        in hama, it is not the mountains that are important, but the annihilation of daesh in the region. around palmyra, there are still quite a few oil/gas fields to be taken i think

  • Hrky75

    These hills are Syrian version of Afghanistan. SAA problem is that the shortest rout to Der Ezzor goes right through the middle of them. Also the region is geographical heart of the country and of it’s oil and gas industry. Even if they find a way to reach Al Bukamal and Der Ezzor indirectly, SAA would have to mop the area up anyway. Good thing is that ISIL doesn’t have enough locally available supplies to put up a meaningful resistance – but still it’s not good to rush and lose good men needlessly…

    • Barba_Papa

      Better to mop them after reaching Al Bukamal and Deir Ezzor, then mop them up first and have the US and its proxies reach Alk Bukamal and Deir Ezzor first.
